Combining the quirky, awkward-but-sexy nature of CSS with a more defined loud-vs-soft side, Eula (MySpace) is a fun new wave group from New Haven. Their music is packed with the loud, pointed guitar riffs and rapid basslines that would make Northwest pseudo punk proud; think a blown out of proportion and hyped-up Kill Rock Stars release.
“HOUSEWOLF” comes to us from their latest EP, Language of Threat. Alyse’s vocals are shouted cleverly; they are emotive but there’s also a lack of emotion. How is this possible? You’ll just have to listen to find out. In a way, it’s a clash of the aforementioned CSS with Mika Miko, and maybe even a hint of OOIOO.
Curious for more? I sure am. Language Of Threat is slated for self-release on March 10. They’ve got two events planned in the near future: this weekend they’ll be playing a special Valentine’s event at Charleston in Brooklyn, and they’ll be at S.W.A.N. fest in Hartford this coming March 28. The east coast always gets the best shows. Nonetheless, keep an eye and ear out for this New Haven trio – they’re sure to make some waves!
